  • Only issue was that we did not allow enough time for explore all the exhibits and had to skip the Antarctic portion. Glad we too the submarine tour as our guide, Colin, really made the boat come alive...  more »
  • Amazed by the huge lego of a ship once you enter. Types of boats used especially those for the races. Can do the submarine tour but time was too tight. Nice cool cafe with gift shop.  more »

  • School holidays. Took my grandson to the Maritime Museum last week to attend the event Pirates. He had such good fun. First my grandson made a pirate's hat. Then we went into a room that was set up with ships, canons and soft balls, stories, history boards, interactive games and dress-up clothes. Designed very well so that this suited age group from 4 - 12yrs old.
  • The Museum has just done something amazing which is above and beyond all others... it is showing a Virtual Reality movie of Antarctica... using new technology combined with subject matter which is the first of its kind in the world. I could watch it again and again... I felt like I was in the helicopter... and standing right there as the penguin looked up at me (the camera)... and the AURORA AUSTRALIS was .... huge!! All over the sky as I looked up!!!
